St. Paul's House is an independent mission house serving hungry New Yorkers and satisfying souls since 1945. St. Paul's House offers food programs as well as job training, transitional housing, and discipleship programs to men who are experiencing homelessness or addiction issues.
Our volunteers serve breakfast, build relationships with and lead a devotion time with guests, and set-up and clean-up for the soup kitchen and food pantry. Volunteers also assist with youth programs and movie nights.
Our funding helps cover the costs of nutritious meals for guests, kitchen supplies (including a commercial stove and refrigerators), other soup kitchen materials, and a gospel-centered youth group curriculum.
Our capacity building has helped to provide strategic planning, board development, leadership development and fund development projects.
To me when someone said they loved me it meant they wanted something from me. The love I experienced was ugly and life was overwhelming. When I came to St. Paul's House I was overcome, I was moved. They were speaking about a different kind of love. And this love had an effect of me— it was God's and it touched me. I not only heard it but I saw it through the staff and volunteers; it was pure, sincere, genuine, and loyal. I feel like I am a part of a family— a loving one.
